Yes you can make it work. a lot of people pair they’re refugium with skimmers in the sump just separated by baffles. It’s recommended to have your refugium down stream from your skimmer to maximize the pod populationThat is not a bad idea at all. What about buying a "refugium" vs. having a 20g aquariuam as the refugium and just putting skimmer in there and section it off with glass panes?
Right now I just have about 20 lb of live rock in there so copepods can have a place to breed and be safe from the DT hungry mouths. down stream meaning - overflow directly into 20g, then out and into a refugium (in or out of the 20g?) and then back up into the DT?Yes you can make it work. a lot of people pair they’re refugium with skimmers in the sump just separated by baffles.

I am running 5 , 3 orphek or3 blue plus and 2 reef day. It is probly overkill , orphek themselves said two would suffice for all coral expect acro. I just got lucky in acquiring two extra onesYou don't know how exciting that is to hear. I haven't had anyone comment positive/negative regarding the orphek or3 LED's and growing coral. I've been hesitant to try them out, but I also spent $400 on lights and was hoping that would suffice. I've got two 48" one blue one purple. What are you running in that pic, it looks like almost 5 bars....
What kind of rodi system is that? And where did u get it? Would love to have a portable one like that** LOOKING FOR RECOMMENDATIONS on what to put in the sump. Just have one rock there, hoping it is a safe place for the copepods to build up a population.
Also here is the picture of my RO/DI set up. Don't mind the litter boxes.
